Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 9. 1965.

St. Matthew's Passion

St. Matthew's Passion

Sirs,—It is perhaps an unfortunate coincidence that every time I have the opportunity to read your paper Salient I am brought to a sudden stop by some snide comment about Roman Catholicism. I refer in this instance to a paragraph on page 2 of your issue for April 27, which carries an insinuation that Roman Catholics are inhibited from following a course in philosophy.

As a Roman Catholic and a student of philosophy, I claim that the insinuation is not true. The column in which the paragraph occurs is aptly labelled "Pettipoint" for the point is petty indeed. It may interest you readers to know that I am a graduate student of the University of Auckland and have included philosophy in my degree and continue to read extensively in that subject for my own interest and betterment.

R. J. Matthews
